Rugby Player’s “Injury” Brings Game To Screeching Halt — Then He Gets On 1 Knee.

Chris Robinson proposes to Amanda Tuckwell on rugby pitch

It isn’t every day that Chris Robinson pulls the wool over girlfriend Amanda Tuckwell’s eyes.

The West Yorkshire, England couple has been dating for five years, and Chris wanted to find a way to surprise Amanda with a marriage proposal. The only problem? Amanda always knows what he’s going to do before he does it! Chris decided that taking her away for a trip would clue her in to his intentions, so he hatched a plan to fake an injury during his rugby team’s upcoming game to catch her off guard.

At the Yorkshire League match against Kirkburton Cougars, the referee’s GoPro headcam captured the moment when Chris falls to the ground with an “injury,” then hops up on one knee when Amanda comes running. His whole team was in on the stunt!

“I was a bit nervous,” Chris admitted later. “I was worried about what the other team would say, but we were winning comfortably so it wasn’t a close game. I wouldn’t have done it otherwise!”

Watch the moment Amanda learns she’s been “had” in the video below, and don’t forget to share.
